Also years ago, I cut out those foods that are damaging to our systems. I thought I was doing well until I heard about Qigong Master Jeff Primack and his food based healing system…”

Zen and the Art of Home Buying

It used to be that buying a home – a house or condo – was one of the more fraught experiences we had as adults. People seem to move more frequently now, but I think for many of us it can still be stressful. It’s still one of the most expensive purchases many of us will ever make and, no matter how well researched, represents both a gamble… and a commitment. Most of us would be immobilized and still living in our first home if we really thought about it too much — so we do our due diligence and then take a deep breath, cross our fingers, and jump.


William James and the Psychic Dreamer on the Bridge by Robert Moss

Bertha Huse, a teenage mill girl, goes out for a walk in the cool morning mist of a New Hampshire fall. This is her habit, but her family worries when she does not return for breakfast and does not show up for work. A few hours later, a full-scale search is in progress. She likes to walk a Shaker bridge across Lake Mascoma, and it is feared she may have fallen into the water and drowned. The mill owner sends for a diver. There is no sign of Bertha above or below water.


Life after Life: An Investigative Look at Reincarnation by Don Mordasini

As we age the prospect of dying becomes a reality we must deal with. For some, this prospect is very frightening. Many of my clients start worrying about growing old or dying during their middle age. Others tell me they just put off the thought until a later time. Yet others try to distract themselves with any number of activities…. The money spent on anti-ageing products could probably feed all of the world’s impoverished people, yet we use it to ward off fear of dying.

Ask Li Chen: Channeled Messages on Forgiveness by Jocelyn Graef

Forgiveness is letting go. Letting go of hurt, feelings of revenge, feelings of requiring “justice,” feelings of being owed, feelings of anger — all these negative feelings that serve to poison your heart…. While it is quite natural to respond with powerful emotions when a wrong has been done against you, there comes a time when the balance is tipped and it is time to release and move on. Forgiveness is not an act of condoning harmful action. Rather it is intention to forgive that allows for hearts to heal.” From

Wellbeing & Healing

Vitamin D for Depression, Diabetes and Dementia by Dr. Mercola

Dr Mercola writes, “Research has repeatedly shown that vitamin D can improve a number of brain disorders, including depression and dementia–the most devastating form of which is Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin D receptors appear in a wide variety of brain tissue early in the fetal development, and activated vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain… optimal vitamin D levels may enhance the amount of important chemicals in your brain and protect brain cells by increasing the effectiveness of the glial cells in nursing damaged neurons back to health.”
